HE WAS photo-fin­ished.

A Brook­lyn jury took just an hour Mon­day to con­vict a man caught on sev­eral sur­veil­lance cam­eras murdering his ex-girl­friend.

Rolanso Lex­une was found guilty of stran­gling Deneisha Smith with his bare hands in 2016 in­side the Bed­ford Ave. cell phone re­pair store were she worked.

“This was a bru­tal and vi­cious as­sault of an in­no­cent wo­man who had her whole life ahead of her,” said Brook­lyn Dis­trict At­tor­ney Eric Gon­za­lez.

The mur­der was cap­tured on nine of the store’s sur­veil­lance cam­eras.

Lex­une faces 25 years to life in prison when he is sen­tenced on June 11.
